I had an older machine that had MS Office 2007, Student and Teacher edition.  This edition did not have Outlook 2007 as part of the package.  i installed MS Outlook 2007 seperately and eveything worked just fine.  I bought a new machine and transfered all files to the new machine.  I then install the MS Office 2007 Student and Teacher package and then the Outlook 2007.  Now whenever I open a new email message, the stationary defaults to the "grid" paper stationary (I forgot  he name of it).  If I go to options to check the stationary, it appears to be grayed out or not installed.  So now, it allways defaults to a stationary that is not enabaled.  Very annoying!

I did some research and what I found out indicates that "themes" or "stationary" is not enabled/installed in Outlook 2007 unless Word 2007 and Outlook 2007 are installed with the same installation ID.  I was wondering if anyone else encounted this problem and if any one came up with a work around

This article was one of the items I viewed as I was doing my research into this problem specifically the following comment.

UPDATE (23 Jul 2007): Apparently, to make themes work, you need to have Outlook and Word from the same Office 2007 package. Installing Outlook 2007 standalone along with Word from Office 2007 Home and Student Edition will not make themes available.

This snipet indicates that "Themes", which includes stationary, will not be enabled if Outlook 2007 is installed after MS Office Home and Student Edition.  So are you saying it cant be done or that there is no work around?

So are you saying that
